So, what else can we expect from the series? We know that the first episode will see Shelby receive a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve telling him the Peaky Blinders are in “danger of annihilation”.
The tease continues: “As the enemy closes in, Shelby flees his country house and returns to the streets of Small Heath, Birmingham where a fight for survival begins….”
The action in the upcoming episodes, written by Steven Knight, starts six months after the events of series three.
